*Author Talks include a read aloud, TEKS & SEL components, writing/publishing process, and interactive time with the kids. My aim is to connect with and encourage your kids so they leave with an “I can create!” attitude and renewed excitement.
*Creative Writing Workshops include hands-on writing activities walking kids through the process of finding ideas and turning them into writing! (Wonderful for small groups like GT, UIL Ready Writing, art, or theater groups.)
I bring stories, insights, and inspiration tailored for diverse gatherings, ensuring each audience receives a memorable, impactful experience.
Literacy Night, World Read Aloud Day, Read Across America, Poetry Month, Book Fair, UIL celebrations, and teen talks on discovering your cause.
MOPS Groups, Ladies Conferences, Single Moms Groups, Keynote Speaker
My workshops include hands-on writing activities for small groups walking kids through the creative process from ideas to paragraphs or stanzas
We had the pleasure of having Angela Henderson Smith as a guest author to our campus last spring. She immediately brought life, joy, and creativity to our event! Angela was so down-to-earth and relatable with all ages of our student body (Kinder – 12th), and she really inspired the kids and instilled confidence in them as writers. If you have the opportunity to hear her speak or have her work with your students, do it! You’ll come away with knowledge, inspiration, and assurance that you have a story worth telling!
Angela is warm and personable with a gift for joyfully drawing out the creative writing potential in students. My ten year old left camp with a new view of himself as someone who can write great stories and create fun characters like the ones he has always enjoyed reading! What an awesome skill to carry through life!
